of it all day. terry? >> reporter: diane, tonight, cairo is just delirious. the people of egypt are intoxicated with freedom. their struggle to change their government, through peaceful means, by standing up in dignity and determination has ended in absolute triumph. they did it. every one of them. they did it. 30 years of one-man rule. 18 days of sometimes bloody protests. and a genuine people's movement that would not be denied culminated in this. vice president omar suleiman, hosni mubarak's long-time collaborator and the man he chose to inherit his powers just yesterday, announced that the era of mubarak was over. "president hosni mubarak has decided to step down as president of the republic," he said. and he concluded, "may god guide us." government power is now in the hands of the nation's military, headed by this field marshall. but the real power is here. today, that power flowed out of tahrir square and down the avenues of cairo in a long march, 13 miles to the presidential palace. we are on the road to the president palace. we are still 30 minutes by foot to the palace

"leave, leave." but mubarak made clear one thing, he's not going anywhere anytime soon. "i will be responsible for changing the constitution," he said in a televised speech to the nation. he added he would stay in office until september, "to assure stability and a smooth transfer of power." that and mubarak's announcement that he was delegating some of his presidential powers to his hand-picked vice president omar suleiman. it all came as a crushing disappointment to the protesters. then, vice president suleiman took to the airwaves to try to reassure the
